Staining everything brown? sounds more like volemus. Quietus also shows more zonation on the cap, altho not so much in age. There are quite a few brownish red lactarius, some acrid, some not. Peckii is also very common and extremely acrid; when I was recently East, as a joke, folks kept trying to get me to take a bite, but I wasn’t born yesterday.

Each mushroom must be decided on its own merits, which includes biting the one in hand; those fungi can fool ya!
